Home to Home Program: Keeping Pets Out of the Shelter 
Seattle Humane is working hard to keep families together through its community outreach programs, but sometimes pet guardians have to make the very difficult decision to find new homes for their furry friends. Rather than go through the stressful process of surrendering them to our shelter, pet guardians now have the option of using Seattle Humane’s Home to Home program. This direct-to-adopter tool lets people communicate with prospective adopters, and find the right new home for their pets. The Home to Home program has had an amazing response since it launched almost a month ago, with 14 lucky pets finding new homes. Many incoming surrenders to Seattle Humane have been canceled recently, because Home to Home gave pet guardians the right tools to handle rehoming on their own. If you’re needing to rehome a pet or looking to grow your family, please visit

What's New at Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project

FCSNP is open! The clinic is now operating on a Monday through Thursday schedule.

Call for Carriers!
Spaying and neutering 8,000 cats means a lot of cat carriers come through the doors at FCSNP. They can always use donations of carriers for clients who cats in carriers which are less than ideal for cats to recover in after their spay or neuter surgery: a carrier that breaks, one that’s too small for a big cat to stretch out in, or one large carrier containing a litter of kittens who need to be separated while they wake up from anesthesia, for example. Clients who need carriers are charged a small transfer fee so they can keep the carrier and have a safe method for transporting their cat the next time they need to do so.

If you’d like to donate one or more carriers but don’t have them on hand, try looking for them at thrift stores rather than spending full price. Nextdoor and local Buy Nothing groups are other possibilities. You might even want to check with your friends or your vet to see if they have any carriers to donate!

FCSNP can use hard-sided carriers in any size appropriate for a cat. (14" x 14" x 24" is about as large as is practical.) You can drop them off at FCSPN's Lynnwood location Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., or email the Renton clinic at to arrange a drop-off time there.
